Do you raise chickens or goats?

I'm looking for a local source of free range/pastured eggs and/or fresh goat milk that I can buy weekly for my family, either right now or as Spring approaches. If you raise animals and have some dairy and/or eggs to share, I would love to set up an arrangement with you and can probably gather additional people together, if you're interested.

If you've never been here, then you don't know a secret that California is hiding: Eggs cost a fortune! A dozen eggs--regular, old-fashioned, factory farmed eggs--will cost up upwards of $4 here. If you want something fancy--free range, organic, what have you--expect to pay close to $6. It's the only place I've ever been where half-dozen boxes of eggs are sold standard in every store because it's the only way they're even remotely affordable. So it's refreshing to see this ad--a real self starter! You go and find a chicken in this state, and you wrench those eggs out from under her! Revolution! Revolution! Revolution!

pleas buy my ipod, it is the very 1st one and i don't know what's wrong with it. so if u want to buy it for 30 o.b.o then thats fine .. pleas e-mail me. tnks for looking

The thing about this ad isn't the horrendous number of typos (wood it kill u to proofreed?), but instead the fact that it obscures the fact that he jacked the price of a broken ipod by $10 from the title to the ad itself. That's some savvy salesmanship!

Free *broken* Apple 65W Portable Power Adapter

Technically, it may still work -- I stopped using it because one day I plugged it in and quickly noticed a faint smell of burning electronics.

... so I decided that someone else may want to set their house on fire, so I'm giving this away!

It is truly staggering to me how much porn changes hands on Craigslist. But this ad, with its ALL CAPS immediacy and its insistence that the magazines DO NOT NEED TO BE IN MINT CONDITION may be the creepiest I've seen. I really can't imagine anything I'd definitely want in mint condition more than used porn. I mean, think about it. But not this guy--he'll take it dripping in fluids, as long as its old.

Old Fence Wood, Perfect for burning Man

Help your self 350' of fencing free

Check the calendar: It's January. Having driven through a scorching Nevada a week before Burning Man last year, I can tell you without hesitation that it's not for nine more months. Moving out here right before that godforsaken event, Craigslist was full of garbage for sale for Burning Man (broken bikes, broken tents, stained carpet, ripped tarps--you name it, they had it!). But who knew the ads would start this far in advance!

All those buzzwords crammed in at the end! "Widget Platform Company" rolls off the tongue so easily, doesn't it? It's like a game of Silicon Valley telephone. You almost expect to find "purple monkey dinosaur" stuck in there somewhere. They couldn't have crammed "social network" or "viral" in as well?
